Award-winning, freelance illustrator and designer with 10 years experience provides structured service with attention to detail and deadlines. Working for Orchard Toys provided Kate with a depth and spread of design projects; their clients included Boots, Asda, Mothercare, and Sainsbury’s.
What you gain from Kate's experience is:
• Fresh, original illustration
• Market focused design for your project
• Flexible and approachable service
• Design ranging from pencil sketches to computer-generated illustration and experimental illustration.
Kate welcomes enquiries for projects on:
• çhildren's illustration projects
• Concept ideas
• Creative Workshops
What’s important to Kate about working with clients is that she provides you with an enthusiastic, reliable, first class service.
"In my 20 years of commissioning and managing design and illustration for major publishers, manufacturers and retailers, Kate’s illustration style is one of the most interesting I have come across for a long time. In that it is fun, very commercial and highly innovative. I envisage that this style can be applied successfully to a very wide range of subjects, projects and commissions from web to print, from packaging to publishing.
Kate is much more than an illustrator – but a designer who can offer the full package of services from concept to print – within this I have also witnessed Kate’s strong creative design ability, experienced project management and neat accurate digital artwork."

"She showed herself to be creative, adaptable, personable and an effective team player.
Working to detailed, or limited briefs, she proved herself to be more than able to provide innovative creative solutions to deadline. The quality of her work was always of a high standard and she approached her role conscientiously".
"Kate Smith came to Ilkeston Specialist Arts College to assist in the delivery of an Apple Mac unit of work to Year 12 and 13 students. She designed an informative and useful set of instructions. She worked enthusiastically with students and developed a warm relationship with them during her 5 weeks here. Each student produced a colour repeat design, which will be part of their examination coursework. We were very lucky to get Kate to support in the delivery of this workshop."
